Removing candle wax from carpet

I need to remove candle wax from a carpet runner. The pile of the carpet is very short and the size of the wax spot is about 3 inches in diameter. Any advice on how to remove the wax would be most appreciated.
Thank you.

I found this on the web:
1. Remove with heated iron into absorbent paper towel or napkin.
2. Sponge with a small amount of dry-cleaning solvent. Blot. (Use small amounts to prevent any possible damage to sizings, backings or stuffing materials. Do not use gasoline, lighter fluid, or carbon tetrachloride).
3. Mix one teaspoon of a neutral detergent (a mild detergent containing no alkalies or bleaches) with a cup of luke-warm water. Blot.
